A hotel once owned by the Duke of Westminster has spent £1.5m on a stunning renovation.

The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa in Pulford has unveiled its stunning new interiors to the public.

Owners Nelson Hotels - who have doubled the size of the property since buying it in 1994 - invested the money on the hotel’s main entrance and reception area, function rooms and a number of guest suites.

Owner Susan Nelson said: “Historically and architecturally, different aspects of the hotel have been redeveloped and modernised.

“Having focused on these areas individually, the hotel lacked consistency from both an aesthetic and practical point of view.

“We wanted this investment to address this issue by bringing together the disparate parts of the hotel.

“The result is spectacular and we are thrilled to have achieved our objective.

“A stunning central hub has now been created in which we can greet and welcome our guests.”

The hotel’s origins date back to the 18th century and many of its original features can still be seen today.

The company’s latest investment has focused on the renovation of the hotel’s main entrance and reception area.

This ambitious £1.5 million project has included the construction of a two storey reception area with an exquisite new entrance.

A mezzanine floor has been erected above the reception, providing guests with a contemporary break out and lounge area. A number of guest bedrooms and two function suites have been stylishly refurbished as part of this redevelopment.

A glass wall at the front of the property offers guests a glimpse into the new stunning interiors and an impressive sweeping stone staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor overlooking the new reception area.

The Nelson family commissioned the reception desk from the iconic furniture maker, William Yeoward.

The design has been adapted from one of his signature pieces, the Arley console. The centrepiece of this extensive project is a magnificent chandelier that cascades from the roof to the reception below.

Fifty cut crystal candles are suspended on clear wires to give the impression they are floating in mid-air.

The hotel’s smaller function suites have been elegantly refurbished to offer an ideal venue for intimate weddings, corporate meetings and social events for up to one hundred guests.
